What's a sweatshop without a little fun?

Digital Pencil

My Idea: digital pencil. Partnering with an existing eBook app, like the Kindle app for iPad, create a digital pencil that can sense when it’s being held and notify the app to interpret any touches as notes, not page turns or interactions with the UI.

Really, I think the idea of integrating a touch sensor in a stylus would really be amazing in terms of its usefulness. The big advantage of writing in the real world with a pen or pencil is that most of the time you can just pick it up and start writing. You generally can’t do that with an iPad. If you had a sensor in the stylus, you could.
